Cammy Stands Up to Ryan’s Brother

It’s Weekend Writing Warriors again. I hope you all had a wonderful Fourth of July/Canada Day, or a great week in general. I’m sharing another eight, which comes from the scene I shared the last week. Not appreciating her response, Miguel proceeds to ask Cammy a series of questions which irritates Ryan. Cammy, on the other hand, remains unnerved.


“You’re not gonna bring Ryan down,” Miguel declared. “Tell me the truth kid, what are-”

“My name’s not kid, Miguel.”

“Excuse me?”

“Ryan told ya my name, so use it.”

“You listen to me, don’t-”

“I never listened to my dad, so what fuckin’ chance you got? You wanna talk to me, do it like a real man, not like some macho dick.”


Cammy has got lots of cojones, no? I couldn’t believe I wrote this way back when. I always love to see your comments. I’m going to be busy for the rest of the month, so I’ll be on hiatus from WWW until at least August. I look forward to reading your snippets.

Ryan lectures Cammy…Will she listen?


It’s Weekend Writing Warriors, the place where writers share eight sentences from their stories. The last three weeks were busy for me, hence my lack of presence. This summer’s going to be busy so I’ll be missing more Sundays – I’ll let you know when that happens. For my first week back, I’m sharing an 8 from my novel in progress. It comes from my last 8 where Cammy wants to know why Ryan’s in such a mood. Ryan let’s her know why and he’s the first to speak:

“I don’t hear word one from you at all! No call, no text, nothin’!”

“What was I supposed to say, ‘Yo Ryan, can’t make it, I’m like totally shit-faced?’”

“Honestly, that woulda been a lot better.”

She rolled her eyes, blowing away a lock of hair hanging over her vision. “Stud get real, you can’t-”

“I had no idea what happened to you!” Ryan blurted. “You didn’t see the look on my brother’s face not to mention mine, he thought you ditched me, and I was tryin’ to stand up for you!”

Next week I’ll show you how Cammy reacts to this. Your comments are always helpful and don’t forget to click on the link to see the official list of participating authors. Happy Sunday everyone! And happy Father’s Day to all the proud papas out there!

Weekend Writing Warriors – 5/19/13


It’s Weekend Writing Warriors time. I’m continuing to share more snippets from my novel. This eight continues a few lines from my last post. Ryan gives Cammy the cold shoulder, as he attempts to finish his paper. Cammy’s patience wears then and decides to be blunt. So here it is:


“The hell’s with the attitude?” Cammy asked sharply. “The fuck you been ignorin’ me for? Who stole your mornin’ java?”

Ryan titled his head up, looking at her with one raised eyebrow. “You’re really askin’ me that?”

He snorted and continued typing. She pressed the monitor firmly down on his hands and blurted, “Yeah…I am!”

He gave her a dazed look, but groaned when he saw the serious expression on her face.
